“Live at the Foxes Den” is a film with a noir soul trapped in an episode of “Glee” as told by Instagram. First-time writer-director Michael Kristoff and writer/co-star Jack Holmes serve up Jackson Rathbone as a wannabe-Sinatra-type lounge singer in this tale of a man with a past, but the film is rather reminiscent of Joan Cusack’s line of advice in “Working Girl”: “Sometimes I sing and dance around the house in my underwear. Doesn’t make me Madonna. Never will.” “Foxes Den” debuts day-and-date on VOD and in 13 markets including Los Angeles and New York on Dec. 6. It’ll soon arrive at a Redbox kiosk near you.
The film is bookended by the arrival of a mysterious package, which turns out to be intended for youthful-looking attorney Bobby (Rathbone, from the “Twilight” series), who opens it and furrows an unlined brow, accompanied by a portentous orchestral crescendo. »

Live at the Foxes Den's heart is certainly in the right place, but its content is culled from so many different movies that it seems the end product of a particularly unfocused pitch meeting.
Director and co-writer Michael Kristoff borrows a little from All of Me (a ladder-climbing attorney dating the boss's snooty daughter secretly yearns to be a jazz musician), a little from various John Grisham works (a defense lawyer for a greedy firm has a crisis of conscience), and most obviously from The Fabulous Baker Boys.
Only this time, instead of a sexy chanteuse striving to save a hardened, alcoholic lounge pianist from self-destruction, the would-be savior is the aforementioned lawyer, Bobby Kelly (the Twilight series' Jackson Rathbone). Bobby d »

Hard to believe, but there was a time before "The Twilight Saga." Five long years ago, Stephenie Meyer's books were best-sellers, but most people didn't know about her sparkly romantic vampires. "Kellan Lutz" and "Jackson Rathbone" were not household names. And Kristen Stewart was still best known for playing Jodie Foster's asthmatic little girl in "Panic Room."
All that changed five years ago this week, on November 21, 2008, with the debut of "Twilight." The vampire romance made instant A-listers out of Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner. It went on to earn about $400 million worldwide and spawn four similarly huge sequels (total worldwide gross: $3.3 billion). It put independent studio Summit on the map (where it was eventually gobbled up by Lionsgate) and launched a vogue that continues to this day for fantasy movies that appeal to teenage girls (notably, the "Hunger Games" franchise).

“Is this the end of zombie Shakespeare?” It would appear not, as John Murlowski’s comedy Zombie Hamlet makes its way onto DVD on December 31st. Written by John McKinney and with original music by Jackson Rathbone, whom you might remember from Twilight or, if you’re too ashamed to admit you knew that, the indie horror flick Dread.
Zombie Hamlet tells the story of first-time film director, Osric Taylor (Travis Wester), as he finally manages to get his dream movie financed. He envisions Shakespeare's Hamlet set against the epic backdrop of the American Civil War. Osric heads to a small Louisiana town to start filming when his production funding unexpectedly dries up. With no other options, he agrees to accept southern matron Hester Beauchamp's offer to finance his movie, as long as »

The undead get Shakespearean in the inevitable 2012 comedy film Zombie Hamlet.
Desperate filmmaker Osric Taylor (Travis Wester, TV’s Ghostfacers) dreams of making his Civil War-era Hamlet, but when production funding dries up, he agrees to take southern matron Hester Beauchamps’ (June Lockhart, TV’s Lost in Space) offer to fund the film if he throws some zombies in it to make their money back. But when Hester dies in mid shoot, Osric dresses up as Hester to cash the last check and awakens the suspicions of both the local police and ambitious local news reporter Shine Reynolds (Shelley Long, TV’s Cheers).

Prepare yourselves, Twihards. Your DVD collection is about to experience a Cullen invasion (the best kind of invasion!).
Tuesday marks the release of Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga on DVD and Blu-ray. Other than a high-definition look at Edward’s sparkling skin, this DVD set also comes with some special behind-the-scenes clips. For instance, did you know that Kristen Stewart got her rear end ‘molded’ in order to create a device that would help Taylor Lautner carry her around for long periods of time (think Jacob and Bella’s walk through the woods in Eclipse)? Well, thanks to an exclusive behind-the-scenes look, »

There's a lot more to Twilight than Edward and Bella. No, really! Jackson Rathbone's gilded smirk and arched eyebrow was secretly the best part of the hit vampire series. I mean, have you heard him say "Possibly" in Breaking Dawn? It's great! Anyway, he ate yogurt on YouTube this week (no, really!), poked a little fun at the franchise and proved that yes, Virginia, emo vampires do have a sense of humor. Plus: Neil Patrick Harris and fiancé David Burtka could not be any cuter with their kids, Pete Wentz got his Miley on (sort of) and more of »

It's a safe bet Sheila Hafsadi turned many a head when she walked down the aisle all dressed in white to marry Twilight alum Jackson Rathbone. But the groom, 28, stole at least some of the show in his own eye-catching tartan tux he rocked during the Sept. 29 nuptials. In a series of Alison Dyer-snapped photos released exclusively to People, the newlyweds blended tradition with their trailblazing ways for their carnival-themed big day, which had 150 guests (including former costar Nikki Reed, who was in the wedding party) flocking to the Saddle Peak Lodge in Calabasas, Calif.

Jackson & Sheila reportedly swapped vows in a low-key ceremony this weekend. Congrats to the happy couple!
Sorry, ladies, but another vampire is off the market! Jackson Rathbone, who Twi-hards fell in love with as Jasper in The Twilight Saga, said “I do” to girlfriend Sheila Hafsadi on Sept. 29 during a private ceremony in Malibu, Calif., Us Weekly reports.
Jackson, 28, and Sheila’s love story is an unconventional one — but romantic, nonetheless. While touring with his band 100 Monkeys, Jackson met burlesque dancer Sheila on one of his stops, and it was love at first sight.
And in July 2012, the couple welcomed its first child, Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI.
Like we said, romantic!
It sounds like Jackson and Sheila’s wedding was also full of love, according to an insider. It was “small,” and attended by only “close friends and family.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
